With a lower limb impairment, cyclic upper body exercise can become the primary form of locomotion for an individual. We aimed to determine how peak parameters differ for upper body cyclic exercise compared to lower body cyclic exercise.
Regular American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) training and active lifestyle guidelines may not necessarily apply to upper body exercise.
To develop world-wide training guidelines for wheelchair-dependent individuals. To develop knowledge on fatigue and pacing strategies in the context of rehabilitation, to enable patients to deal with fatigue in daily life and sports.
No relevant competing interests disclosed.
